my name is cassidy. i don’t really do much introductions. and i’m ‘nice’ because it’s something i’m familiar with. i can’t say i know how you’re feeling, because your experiences are your own, as mine are my own. but i know what despair feels like to me, and many other emotions in a seemingly unemotional state. i want to give you reminders that there is hope for the future, and that although scars prove that you’ve been through something and survived, it doesn’t mean that you need as many to get through what you’re going through. i’ve seen things, and i want you to know that there are people who will encourage you even when you are at your worst, and you’re sitting in a hole dug by your own self-hatred. you can get out of it. i wouldn’t want this destruction to be prolonged or occurring to anyone. and partly, because i need to remind myself as well, that things will be better, to struggle, forward, if nothing else.
you will get better. things will get better. and you will be stronger for it. there will be better days, and the days where you will look back, and instead smile at yourself, no matter how badly things seem right now, and how you have the strongest disbelief… things will get better. my last and always request is to smile. because you deserve it more than anything, especially when you’re going through rough and rougher times.
these are a few reasons why. take care, please. i hope that you do find that things improve, soon. you have the will… you just need to channel it where you will see the results over time. it won’t be easy, it won’t be overnight… but it will happen.
